Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, bring water, butter, and salt to a boil. Add flour all at once and stir until a smooth ball forms. Remove from the heat; let stand for 5 minutes.
  2. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Continue beating until the mixture is smooth and shiny.
  3. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto greased baking sheets. Bake at 400°F for 25-30 minutes or until golden. Remove to wire racks. Immediately slit puffs to allow steam to escape.
  4. When cool, split puffs open; remove tops and set aside. Discard soft dough from inside.
  5. In a small mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and mayonnaise until smooth. Stir in remaining filling ingredients. Just before serving, spoon filling into puffs; replace tops.
